these recent moves by the obama administration not only to close the number of embassies that it did, but then today to also issue that worldwide travel alert. but basically the more and more we hear from sources, the more everything seems to point to yemen as the source of origin. >> and as this note says, things seem to have ramped up in the last couple of days with the approach of the end of ramadan. dana, to you on the hill. i know members of congress, they are heading out of town for multiple weeks. they're being briefed. they are obviously taking this quite seriously. >> they are. since you and i spoke last hour, brooke, i've spoken to two additional sources. one from each party who have been briefed. both say they absolutely think the administration is doing the right thing. that this is an entirely appropriate response and reaction based on the threat that they know is out there. the one thing they say, though, is, you know, chris lawrence and our other colleagues, their sources are saying all signs are pointing to yemen. but they also say that they are seeing chatter that sh
